Selnia Sugey's story

Ms Selnia has made a living through her book and grocery store in the Calvario neighbourhood for the last five years. She studies at the university, is married and the mother of a girl. She's a young lady who works hard to bring up her child and improve her quality of life and her business. Her work days begin at six thirty in the morning and finish around seven at night.

The young lady requests a loan to be able to take advantage of the current good prices for school supplies at the fairs in the capital, as in December the prices go up and she needs stock for her book shop. She dreams of owning her own house and carrying on with her business.
